Editorial Reviews

“All schools have difficult staff members. Principals often lose countless hours dealing with these employees and then find nothing has improved. I think principals will find it liberating to learn that they can make headway in turning around resistant staff. Previously, I thought difficult staff members were just plain difficult. However, this book shows that there are actually eight different types of difficult staff members. Principals will find it insightful to understand these different types of resistant people and what causes them to act in a difficult or resistant way.” —Jenn David-Lang, for The Main Idea, 2012
